IPCW Projector Headlights?

Has anyone tried a set of these IPCW Projectors?

Black-http://www.realtruck.com/ipcw-headlights/cws-525b2.html

Chrome-http://www.realtruck.com/ipcw-headlights/cws-525c2.html

They look as though they are decent quality. I can't find anyone that has installed them. I am also wondering if this retailer is including the ballasts and everything needed. I wouldn't mind doing a retrofit, but why if this kit includes it all (with new housings)?

I'm sure quite a few people have them. My buddy has those and they seem to be pretty decent, the plastics were thick and he says the output is better than stock. Those lights are almost 100 bucks cheaper on ebay, which is where he got them, and they're not HID out of the box.

Ah, I see. So they are projectors, just not HIDs. A lot of them look pretty great. I found another set that is cool, it has LEDs and the halo

Anyway, would you advise projector housings like these or just a whole retrofit kit?

retrofit will give you better light, hids are basically the shizz, and they look bad ass too

Those are my old lights!



Very few(if any at all) aftermarket headlights are HID out of the box. Most aftermarket projector lights won't work for HID's. They tend to melt the projectors. Mine had a big red sticker on the top the said "warning: do not put HID lamps in this housing"

If you want HID's, your best bet is to either do a morimoto retrofit on your stock housings, which not only will give great light output, but they look really cool. Or buy Hellas!

Eventually I will get some HIDs. I've got quite a few other mods on the list though ;-)
